Hi everyone! My name is Jack. I was surrendered to French Bulldog Village due to allergies and because I wasn’t the right fit for my previous family.

My foster mom took me to see the vet and the nice vet lady said that I am very cute (but, of course). She also said that I am pretty healthy for a 4 year old. My only health issue is severe allergies (I know I’m not the only Frog with allergies!), but they are being well-controlled with a hunk of cheese every day. My foster mom says there is a pill (Apoquel) in the cheese I am given, but I don’t believe her. Apparently, this Apoquel pill and the good diet I am on are really helping to alleviate my allergies…..and my daily allergy medication costs only $2.25/day.

I only know one command, which is “sit,” but I am definitely open to learning more commands. A fenced yard is a requirement for me, but I am leash trained. I am also crate trained, but prefer not to be crated if at all possible. I am housebroken, too.

I don’t require someone to be home with me all day or a pet sitter/dog walker to come to let me out for a mid-day break, but I would definitely love it! My ideal home would include a person that is home most of the day because I really do enjoy humans much more than dogs. I would actually be fine without a doggie companion in my forever home, because I don’t play that much with other dogs anyway.

I am a calm dog unless I see people and dogs that I don’t know. I must admit that I go temporarily “crazy” when I see a stranger. With my 4 foster doggie siblings, I pretty much keep to myself. I have no beef with them when it comes to food or toys. Humans are much more important to me than dogs. I absolutely love to snuggle with my person!

I do have a 4 year old’s energy and will need a walk or two each day. I LOVE large balls and have recently started chewing on Nylabones. Despite all of this, I still would prefer sitting on my person’s lap (no matter what my person is doing) to anything else.

I do have to confess that I have some emotional baggage from living in an abusive situation before my previous mom saved me. When I see strange people and dogs in passing, I get frantic and start the Frenchie death yodel. My foster mom thinks that I am scared and with some confidence building, my fears will improve. This could take a while, though, so I will require a lot of love and patience from my forever home.

My previous mommy who saved me was a teacher and would take me to school with her, so I am good with children. She did notice, however, that I would sometimes become reactive towards certain men like the UPS man. I also got a little nippy with a guy with a weed eater and a gentleman using a walker.

I am really an amazing little guy. I know that I won’t be available for long, because my foster mom says that I am “PERFECT.” Please consider applying for me. I promise you won’t regret it if you are chosen to be my forever home!
